    Default Replacement cap?

    I have a Tenkara USA Rhodo. The end cap (for the tip) fits somewhat loose, and I've lost the original and the spare.
    Am I correct in reading that the replacement is $10 each plus shipping? Is this normal for tenkara rods?

    Are there generic replacements out there?
    There's not a day that goes by that I don't wonder how dreary this world would be if elk were bald and birds had no feathers.

    I bought one of these things; they work great and I don't think I will lose it:

    Fuji Rod Caps

    I came across a website in which people showed off rod caps that they had made themselves out of various materials, but I can't find it now. A wine cork and some sandpaper (or better yet, a lathe) would solve the problem.

    Just get a portion of kleenex or paper towel roll in up and jam it in there, problem solved, works for me.

    I lost one and improvised with a bit of twig and duct tape on the top of it so it doesn't go down into the rod.
